LFS is the base system, it's all that is needed to build BLFS system basically. It's the basic development packages, BASH, GCC, and other needed packages for installing files. it's LINUX FROM SCRATCH = LFS
BLFS is everything after that, like X, libs, package systems and all, it's BEYOND LINUX FROM SCRATCH = BLFS
Oh man! There is another option for you. There's a thread floating around with links to online stores that "sell" the latest LFS CD's for real cheap. Anyway, check www.cheapbytes.com or do a search on here and you should find it.
This is only if you don't want to spend the long time downloading it.
